I guess I am a heavy user of my mobile phones for a lot of uses - GPS navigation, in-store product research (shopping) and general Googling. My HTC Bolt display has now died, making this my second touch-screen cell phone with display issues. I had a long-lived LG G2 before this. I replaced the display on that, paying rather too much for the replacement, and only bought the Bolt about half a year ago.
I'm dismayed that the displays are so problematic (for me, at least). One of the factors in my choice of the Bolt was that the case is all metal, and it seemed like it should be a robust device. I DID find that no matter where I tried to set the phone down, it slipped or slid off of what looked like horizontal surfaces, so it has for sure had more bumps than I would like. (I ultimately took to storing it in a basket or a pocket, anywhere other than on a table or ledge, where It could not physically slide and fall!).
Any tips or tricks you know for increasing the longevity of these lovely displays, for those of us who like to keep mobile phones past the "gee whiz" dates?
